Goal

When can a retailer use Discrepancy Write Off (DWO) codes as the reason code?

You have decided to use DWO reason code when you have an invoice price discrepancy and want to force the invoice to payment by increasing (or decreasing) the amount of charges, which correspond to the receipts.   The reason you are is not using Receiver Cost Adjustment (RCA) for this is that RCA updates the original information (i.e., the original shipment amount), and it is not practical to report on this.
